Due to no significant weather systems there was decrease in the monsoon activity of India. Only North East states got good rainfall.
It pushes as far west as the Peninsular Ranges and Transverse Ranges of Southern Californiabut rarely reaches the coastal strip a wall of desert thunderstorms only a half-hour's drive away is a common summer sight from the sunny skies along the coast during the monsoon.
However, it is debatable whether the North and South American weather patterns with incomplete wind reversal should be counted as true monsoons. South Asian monsoon Southwest monsoon Onset dates and prevailing wind currents of the southwest summer monsoons in India The southwestern summer monsoons occur from July through September.
The Thar Desert and adjoining areas of the northern and central Indian subcontinent heat up considerably during the hot summers.
This causes a low pressure area over the northern and central Indian subcontinent. To fill this void, the moisture-laden winds from the Indian Ocean rush into the subcontinent.
These winds, rich in moisture, are drawn towards the Himalayas. The Himalayas act like a high wall, blocking the winds from passing into Central Asiaand forcing them to rise.
As the clouds rise their temperature drops and precipitation occurs. The southwest monsoon is generally expected to begin around the beginning of June and fade away by the end of September.
The moisture-laden winds on reaching the southernmost point of the Indian PeninsulaMonsoon report to its topography, become divided into two parts: This branch of the monsoon moves northwards along the Western Ghats Konkan and Goa with precipitation on coastal areas, west of the Western Ghats.
The eastern areas of the Western Ghats do not receive much rain from this monsoon as the wind does not cross the Western Ghats. The winds arrive at the Eastern Himalayas with large amounts of rain. Mawsynramsituated on the southern slopes of the Khasi Hills in Meghalaya, Indiais one of the wettest places on Earth.
After the arrival at the Eastern Himalayas, the winds turns towards the westtravelling over the Indo-Gangetic Plain at a rate of roughly 1—2 weeks per state,  pouring rain all along its way.

The monsoon is widely welcomed and appreciated by city-dwellers as well, for it provides relief from the climax of summer heat in June. Often houses and streets are waterlogged and slums are flooded despite drainage systems.
A lack of city infrastructure coupled with changing climate patterns causes severe economic loss including damage to property and loss of lives, as evidenced in the flooding in Mumbai that brought the city to a standstill. Bangladesh and certain regions of India like Assam and West Bengalalso frequently experience heavy floods during this season.
Recently, areas in India that used to receive scanty rainfall throughout the year, like the Thar Deserthave surprisingly ended up receiving floods due to the prolonged monsoon season. The influence of the Southwest Monsoon is felt as far north as in China's Xinjiang.
With this air pressure begins to build over northern India, the Indian Ocean and its surrounding atmosphere still holds its heat. This causes cold wind to sweep down from the Himalayas and Indo-Gangetic Plain towards the vast spans of the Indian Ocean south of the Deccan peninsula.
This is known as the Northeast Monsoon or Retreating Monsoon. While travelling towards the Indian Ocean, the dry cold wind picks up some moisture from the Bay of Bengal and pours it over peninsular India and parts of Sri Lanka. Cities like Chennaiwhich get less rain from the Southwest Monsoon, receive rain from this Monsoon.
The subtropical flow directs northeasterly winds to blow across southern Asia, creating dry air streams which produce clear skies over India. Meanwhile, a low pressure system known as a monsoon trough develops over South-East Asia and Australasia and winds are directed toward Australia.
East Asian Monsoon Main article: It is characterised by a warm, rainy summer monsoon and a cold, dry winter monsoon. The rain occurs in a concentrated belt that stretches east-west except in East China where it is tilted east-northeast over Korea and Japan.
The seasonal rain is known as Meiyu in China, Jangma in Korea, and Bai-u in Japan, with the latter two resembling frontal rain. The onset of the summer monsoon is marked by a period of premonsoonal rain over South China and Taiwan in early May.Monsoon - Get latest news on Monsoon.
